The heart is the source of all knowledge What the arms do, where the legs take us, how all the parts of the body move-all of this the heart ordains. These quotations from ancient Egyptian texts show what were believed to be functions of the heart but today are for the most part associated with the brain. Because it is the central organ of the circulatory system, essential for maintaining life, and the signal of special situations in life (through the unmistakable pounding of the heart), in many older civilizations the heart was lent attributes that are not rationally defensible. It is admittedly unclear how much of this was meant literally and how much was rhetorical imagery. For the Egyptians of the time of the Pharaohs, the heart was the seat of the intelligence, the will, and the emotions. Ptah, the god of creation, first planned the universe in his heart, then with his spoken word called it into existence. In the judgment of the dead, the heart of the deceased person is compared in weight with a FEATHER (the symbol of Ma'at, the goddess of justice), to make sure that it has not been made heavy through misdeeds heart is here the equivalent of conscience. In the Bible the heart is the inner person: the Lord seeth not as man seeth for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart II Samuel 16:7]. It is said of God himself that it grieved him at his heart that he had created the human race [Genesis 6:6]. In the New Testament Paul prays that Christ may dwell in [the] hearts [of the Gentiles] by faith [Ephesians 3:3]. In Hinduism the heart is repeatedly referred to as the seat of Atman, the counterpart in mortals of the absolute (Brahman). Islam sees the heart, variously enclosed, as the corporeal seat of spirituality and contemplation. The Aztecs believed that the SUN appearing at the horizon had lost its strength in the course of its nocturnal journey through the underworld, that it was reduced to skin and bones and could gain new strength only from the BLOOD in the hearts of ritually sacrificed humans. The heart, yollot/i, was considered to be the seat of life and the soul. Before cremation a GREEN jewel (see PRECIOUS STONES) was placed in the mouth of the dead person to represent the heart. From the late Middle Ages onward love poetry romanticizes the heart (see Rene of Anjou's A Heart Enflamed with Love), and in art it is soon stylized with anatomically incorrect bosom like upper edges and associated at times with earthly, at times with mystical and heavenly, love (in the latter cases, as a mystical altar, on which the impulses of the flesh are consumed by the FIRE of the Holy Ghost). The heart pierced by an ARROW symbolizes the Savior, loving and suffering for humanity visions {like that of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, ca. 1647} helped establish the veneration of the Sacred Heart. The heart of the VIRGIN Mary is portrayed, following the prophecy of old Simeon to her (Yea, a SWORD shall pierce through thy own soul also-Luke 2:35), as pierced by one or SEVEN swords. (The Mass of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is celebrated in the Roman Catholic Church 20 days after Pentecost.) A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge ... [proverbs 15:13-14].
